DRONES. What The Hell Are They. A Primer.

I would love to get my own drone with my motivation being sheer curiosity & because I will likely never pilot a manned / crewed aircraft, small OR large. I can thank a National Geographic segment about British expat Reginald Denny  for fanning the flames as well as a YouTube short 2 – minute movie showing an aerial view of the Swiss countryside & a small feature about single – use cardboard ( YES, cardboard….. ) supply drones.

A camera with HD  capabilities thereon would make things really interesting…..

A Little Commentary – Are We in Danger of becoming Automatons of Faith?

I was raised in a religious home, with a fairly religious background – even though, truth be known, church was an almost excrutiatingly boring experience as a child = The pastor had little patience in dealing with kids & adolescents / teens – anyway, I was still fairly religious, & reasonably sure in the Protestant Christian faith.

Later in life, I could see people who appeared to just go through the motions, & I could see those that said one thing & did pretty much the exact opposite. & those who believed things just because ” it says so in the Bible “. I have a cousin who I love dearly, but ask her to even take an objective look at what she believes, & you’re probably safer in the path of a funnel – cloud while being in a mine – field with packs of C – 4 around your waist. 🙂

I think people would be better examining why they believe what they believe instead of just taking things ” on faith “, which is a contradiction, I realize. Some people don’t question beliefs because they were raised in them most of their lives, of course. But to examine is HEALTHY.

Amazon Unveils Its Delivery Drone of the Future

Meet George Jetson – or his drone. 🙂
The image of a drone landing on the roof of my apartment with packages for the folks is intriguing – I can imagine one ” dressed up ” with tinsel garlands & holiday decor about now. VERY INTRIGUING !

But the question that must still be asked – Where are our flippin’ flying cars ? Or these sizable craft that will resemble flying saucers or very ** large ** Frisbees taking people cross – country on commutes ?
But – That’s another question for yet anytime, fellow dwellers in the blog – sphere.
